a lot, but compared to a $1 trillion deficit, it is not. the 92% of the deficit unpaid for year by year. if you blow the economy, you could be talking hundreds of billions of dollars increase in the amount of money or treasury gets. why would he go for tax increasethe taxincreases ratherx cuts that would stimulate the economy? speak up much of a understanding of economics than you and i do. raising taxes does not necessarily produce more revenues. they come from a different perspective. cause if you raise taxes if you need more money, it ruins the economy and tax collections go down, they don't seem to realize that. i don't expect a whole lot of beneficial things to happen between now and the beginning of the year. they will just pass on the buck for a little bit longer and worry about the real problems later on. they're barely touching the problem and even the cops they are talking about going into effect are not real cuts, we're not getting anywhere close talking about the real issue. the real issue is the country is bankrupt and the economy is too weak to pay for it. someday we will

't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that's how we did it. >> the facts just aren't with the republicans on this issue of tax cuts. the republican -- the congressional budget office just published a report saying that there's no danger to the economy if the tax cuts for wealthy americans are allowed to expire. even with a political mandate. the president insisted he will listen to all options. he's ready to deliver the balanced approach to debt reduction that he campaigned on. >> i want to be clear. i'm not going into every detail of the plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenge. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that. >> the president is even

rally. 400 something points, enough of a deficit on the dow. melissa: president obama delivering his first remarks of the white house since his election. expected to focus on the fiscal cliff in the broader economy. those comments live in just a few minutes. lori: interesting. the remarks coming after they come off of the weakest decline in a year. the markets near session highs, but will the market like what they hear? melissa: plus, what will the next four years mean for the oil and gas industry? the ceo will join us coming up. but it is time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes let's head to the floor of the new york stock exchange. stocks are climbing higher after the two-day drop. sandra: they did not start out that way, there was fear we would have another dramatic selloff today. now we are somewhat up from about 61 points. that is not exactly a rally. bouncing back a little bit ahead of the weekend, but still the worst two-day drop in a year, 434 points loss over that wednesday and thursday. as we face a fiscal cliff, consumer sentiment one piece of economic data that came out
